James DeGale ready to fight anyone

British super-middleweight James DeGale has admitted that he is targeting a unification showdown with Badou Jack in 2016.

On Saturday night, DeGale successfully defended his IBF title against Lucian Bute in Quebec, but the former Olympic gold medallist is already looking ahead to trying to capture the WBC belt, which is held by Jack.

The 29-year-old told Sky Sports News: “Badou Jack is the one that I want. I think it is a winnable fight and fighting in Vegas would be the dream fight.

“There’s also Arthur Abraham, but boxing is booming in my weight division. There are some big fights out there but I am ready for anyone.”

In September, Jack defended his title with a split-decision win over George Groves.
